Hello all,

I have a list with words and numbers that I want to sort on the number.

Basicly in this format:
word <tab> number

Now I try to sort this list on the number, but the filter command doesn't evaluate the number. It's being stupid... frown
/filter -etucff 2 9 file1.tmp file2.tmp

=22:16:36= <+Bot> Word1 77
=22:16:38= <+Bot> NoWord 71
=22:16:40= <+Bot> Wording 70
=22:16:42= <+Bot> AlsoWord 70
=22:16:44= <+Bot> OtherWord 7
=22:16:46= <+Bot> SomeWord 67

Obviously that 7 should be at the end of the list, not between 70 and 67. Does anyone know how to solve this? Or how to get round it?

Thanks a lot!

Hmm, well the number is being generated using a /hinc command.
How could I write 07 instead of 7?
Is there a command to convert it to 07 ?

Thx smile

I suggest using $base(NR,10,10,2,0).
You might want to increase the third param, "zeropad" for further compatibility with higher numbers. For example $base(55,10,10,4,0) will return 0055

$base(NR,10,10,2,0)

The last parameter (0) is not necessary in this case but can you give me help about it ? at least an exemple smile

Edit : after some test it seems to works like $round .

It's called "precision"

$base(15.3175,10,10,3,0) == 015
$base(15.3175,10,10,3,1) == 015.3
$base(15.3175,10,10,3,2) == 015.31
$base(15.3175,10,10,3,3) == 015.317 etc

Note that it's "cutting", not rounding.
Compare the last two lines with:

$round(15.3175,2) == 15.32
$round(15.3175,3) == 15.318
